It's the planetary defense-force of our dreams: Fancy Castillo Garrido on inner worlds, Barbara Belmont on how Out to Innovate (formerly NOGLSTP) makes this one better, & Ed Rivera-Valentín on creating waves of future Latinx astronomers to go beyond.
In Content Makers, it's visual sci-communicator Fancy Castillo Garrido on the formation of "beautiful communities" both inside and outside your corporeal self, and on how hard it often is for scientists to "open up and trust what they know."
In Orgs to Know, we welcome Barbara Belmont of Out to Innovate (formerly NOGLSTP). “When I was coming out, I had no role models, especially in science. Finding an organization of queer people who spoke my STEM language was like finding home.” Today, that organization is a powerhouse.
Meet planetary scientist Ed Rivera-Valentín, who defeated their “inner saboteur” not just to reach the outer edges of Solar System, but to help ensure that many dazzling star-clusters of future Latinx astronomers and scientists are right behind.
AsapSCIENCE's Mitch Moffit on creative bravery, Queer Engineer's Cel Welch on solving people problems, and Kale Edmiston on what research—and researchers—owe our trans (and more) communities.
